Details –


Among the large choice available on the market to help in reaching lightweighting targets, compression molded materials like SMC and DFC are very clearly in the scope of many Tier1s and OEMs. Designing components made of such material appears to be a real challenge. Like for other chopped fiber reinforced materials, the global performance of the parts is strongly influenced by the effect of the compression molding process on the distribution of fiber orientations, possibly even volume fractions.


About webinar –


This webinar will focus on e-Xstream’s latest applications to model the complex stiffness and failure behaviors of SMC materials from the coupons level up to component’s application. Attendees will learn from our experiences in applying Digimat technology for automotive OEMs.

What you will learn

  • The latest techniques applied to characterize the behaviors of SMC materials
  • How to create multi-scale material model capable of capturing the influence of the microstructure on the stiffness and failure behaviors
  • How to apply such models in structural FEA and improve prediction’s accuracte
